I make these and sell them, but hate to block. After months of pondering whether this will work, I finally got the time tonight to try it and yes, it does.

Simply do the first row normally. Turn, and work the second row with the first row's "back" to you. Then turn and work the next row with it facing you.

It's a bit of a challenge to get the third row started, but you get used to it. It makes a bit of a ridge between rows that somehow stabilizes it, but I think it's kind of interesting.

Now, I don't claim to have actually invented anything, and I am sure others have thought of this or did it themselves, but if not, I am happy to be the first.

N-JOY!

I once saw a tree decorated only with little white lights and granny squares. Believe it or not, it was great. The squares were later joined to form an afghan, but the family admired them one last time on the tree. Also some vintage napkins rings can be used on a tree with a simple pass of ribbon on hold them on.

Here is a link I found for purchasing the pattern for the doll you describe: http://www.thef  et-doll-blanket. It is from Mary Maxim Inc. and is called a crochet blanket doll. I was not able to locate any source for a free pattern. Hope this helps.

I'm looking for a child's poncho pattern that is just one big granny square with a hole in the middle. A friend described it to me, but she lost her pattern years ago and I'm itching to try it. Thanks all.

Granny Square:

Make 5 chain and join up into circle. Crochet 2chain then using the circle make 11 trebles using the middle of the circle. when complete make two chain stitches, then work three trebles into the first three trebles of row before, then two chain, then three more trebles into the same space - this, of course makes the corner.

Do the same with the next three, then the next until you have completed a square, finish off into first stitch of the first corner, then two chain up to start the next round. Carry on from then on and I'm sure you will be OK from then on. Just study a picture if you can of a granny square already made up. Plenty of advice shown in crocheting on net including one of the samples of a bedspread on thrifty fun site by a lady from Arkansas, USA. I have made several blankets with same coloured border to each square and then sewed them up together, or you could crochet same.

Best of luck, hope this helps.

Mary

Instructions for Making a Granny Square

Hi! Go to www.crochetcabana.com It's a great site to learn crochet from. I learned to make a granny square from their instructions and now I'm on my 3rd baby blanket! No, you don't have to become a member or anything like that. They also encourage you to print off the instructions that they give you. The instructions are very clear and concise, they also have pictures. (12/09/2008)

I am hoping someone out there will have a pattern for a Granny Square Poncho. I am looking for the one that uses two big Squares with maybe smaller squares for the shoulders. Or the one that uses just two big squares crocheted together. Right now Ponchos are the big thing for the teenage and twenty something girls and I would love to be able to make them for my 4 daughters for Christmas. Never to early to think of these things.

I have an idea. Take a big square of fabric (stretchy works best) and fold it so its a big triangle. Then, turn it upside down so that the tip is downwards. Then cut a semi-circle in the middle of the top. That's where your head will go. You're done. But you can also follow this instruction. If you want to add extra pizazz, make a fringe by cutting equal pieces at the edge of the fabric and tying them in a knot (it gives it the yarn look). (08/18/2004)

Pattern For A Granny Square Poncho

There is a granny square poncho at http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/chs-poncho.html. It is just like doing a big granny square with a hole in the middle. I redid mind so it didn't have the thing at the neck for the tie and it is perfect. Works up fast just like the squares and you can do it longer for bigger people. I used up all of my scraps on the first one and had people fighting over it. Enjoy. (09/20/2004)
